When planning a trip to the island and before choosing from the selection of Cancun rentals on VacationHomeRentals.com, it is important to pick the right time to travel. One of the best ways to do that is consider the weather. From November to April it goes through a dry season. The temperatures are coolest during this time due to breezes from the north trade winds, with the coolest temperatures occurring in the months of January and February. During these two month the temperature averages around 73.4 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and at night 68 degrees Fahrenheit. From May through October, people staying at Cancun condo rentals experience the island's wet season, which also happens to be its hottest period as well. Because June to October is hurricane season visiting and staying at one of the Cancun vacation rentals is not advised. Because of the mild weather and drier temperatures during the dry season, it is considered the best time to travel to the island.
